well i have long way to go b4 i get a good understanding of linux
xinetd is not a browser.....
from the man page of xinetd
xinetd performs the same function as inetd: it starts programs that
provide Internet services. Instead of having such servers started at
system initialization time, and be dormant until a connection request
arrives, xinetd is the only daemon process started and it listens on
all service ports for the services listed in its configuration file.
When a request comes in, xinetd starts the appropriate server. Because
of the way it operates, xinetd (as well as inetd) is also referred to
as a super-server.
so ucan see that xinetd is required for runnig the other services!!!!
what i would say is that get a latest xine-lib and xine-ui source package from xinehq.de
get the codecs from
and everything works like a charm
